Socially Awkward

It’s no secret that I’m pretty socially awkward. I guess it’s a trait that all computer nerds suffer from. (At least, that’s what I tell myself...) For example, I’m in the elevator today, a woman comes on, and the following conversation happens:

Woman: [notices I’m holding a coffee] Oh! I had a coffee somewhere, and I forgot it!
Woman: [runs her hands over her pockets out of habit, as if the coffee might be in there] Oh well. I’m sure it’s probably cold by now anyway, right?
Woman: [gets off elevator at next floor]

Just in case you didn’t notice it, let me point something out to you: In that entire conversation, I didn’t say a thing.
